What are your thoughts on leap year?

I think it means one more day of being with my husband. : )

I"m all for it. Occasionally have wished it was my birthday, for the uniqueness of it all.

Long, long ago when I was young and saber toothed tigers were roaming the neighborhood, I found the idea of leap year--particularly "leap day" exceedingly romantic. Now my reaction is, "Ho-hum."

It's a nice little change with a mildly interesting reason behind it.

I'm entertained by leap year. I get a kick out of the fact that we need to add a day every 4 years to the calendar.

It's a convenient way to keep the calendar in sync.

Jane, 63
West Linn, OR USA

I think it is a minorly interesting thing and always a chance to talk about the formation of our modern-day calendar.

Felicia, 38
Lowell, MA USA

None whatsoever.


I'm glad that my birthday isn't on February 29. I was surprised, though I really shouldn't have been, that my digital watch jumped from February 28 to March 1.

I think it's confusing. What if someone was born on Feb 29th? When would you celebrate his/her birthday? Same with a marriage/anniversary?
